NFL teams have been busy over the past few days conducting trades before trimming their rosters down to 53 before the start of the regular season.

The New England Patriots have stocked up on backup offensive lineman, while the rest of the league stayed active as well.

Even quarterbacks are hitting the trade wire.

According to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns traded backup quarterback David Blough to the Detroit Lions.

Here's the news from Schefter.

As part of the trade, the two teams will swap seventh-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft.

It's an ironic trade as the move comes just a few hours after Blough threw two interceptions to the Detroit Lions in a preseason contest on Thursday night.

The former Purdue star completed 11-of-17 pass attempts for 115 yards and two picks in a loss to the Lions. Now he finds himself on the way to join the Lions.

He'll have plenty of competition to back up starting quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Lions acquired Alliance of American Football star Luis Perez to compete with Tom Savage for the backup role earlier this week.

It's a crowded quarterback room in Detroit.

Stay tuned for the latest NFL news.
